A trip to Water Village

Tuesday, Mac 23rd was my trip with family to Kampong Air in Bandar Seri Begawan. We hired a water taxi to bring us around the water village. We started our visit at 10 am, ohh thanked God that day the weather was fine and cloudy. This was fun, my kids was excited and I knew this activity is seldom to occur to them. People like us who stay on land will eager to come over and want to feel the life at water village.

Off we go

We passed Kg Bendahara Lama and we could see a our late father's graveyard at 'Tanah perkuburn Limbungan' from distance

wow..nice place to visit..good experience for the lil ones!hehe
i was wondering..y do they hang the baby's placenta up on the tree along the river bank? sorry to ask, but for malays in malaysia normally they just buried them or better still leave at the hospital. (if i am not mistaken-lah)
